Share This:. Sanctuary cities come into play when an undocumented immigrant comes into contact with the police. A very common occurrence of this happens on the road — someone is speeding, has a broken taillight, or has a broken license plate light, and is pulled over. Other reasons immigrants just like native-born Americans come into contact with the police include an immigrant calling the police to their house for example in the case of a domestic dispute , a car accident, drug usage, police checkpoints, so forth. Once an immigrant is arrested, their information gets put into a federal database that is shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE.
